Dazzling Divas Downline Meeting & Shoebox Swap

Last night we gathered at my home for the September downline meeting. Everyone brought delicious food to share. We decided to change things up a bit and do a shoebox-style swap instead of our regular format this month. Wow, what a great idea...we had so much fun creating each project and lots of chit-chat as well. We had a lot to catch up on! Each of us created our project with a Fall theme and then brought enough supplies pre-cut and ready to go for each other to create the project. We had 5 people participating. So we each made 4 projects. Here are the projects I made last night:

This is the project that I created...It is a Fall Coaster Banner

Here it is open....

Paper: Really Rust, Autumn Meadows DSP, Taken with Teal, More Mustard, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla
